Thus, a positive number multiplied by a positive number was modelled as repeated steps to the right thus yielding a positive result; a positive number multiplied by a negative number
as repeated steps to the left thus yielding a negative result; and a negative number
multiplied by a negative number
as repeated backward steps facing left resulting in a distance to the right of zero and hence a positive result.
